USA: Geostellar Plans Solar Power Map of Every Rooftop in the U.S.

Distributed solar power goes wild! Geostellar has teamed its rooftop solar power analytic toolkit with the satellite imaging company GeoEye to help realize its grand plan to assess the solar energy generating potential of every rooftop in the U.S. With this tool in hand, practically anyone with a roof can get a quick preview of whether or not a solar installation is a sound investment for their property.

Geostellar’s signature analytic tool essentially stuffs a laborious manual process into a software package, significantly lowering the price of calculating the return on investment for a solar installation (or, for that matter, deciding whether the property is suitable for a solar installation at all).
By helping to lower the cost of planning a solar installation the new partnership dovetails with President Obama’s SunShot initiative, which aims to make solar power cost-competitive with fossil fuels not only by funding research into more efficient solar technology but also by cutting sidebar expenses such as site development and permitting for distributed solar power installations.
